Safety From the Backfield to the Frontline
— Sports Analyst at NBC Sports Chicago &
Retired NFL Linebackers, Chicago Bears
Lance Briggs is a retired 12-year NFL veteran All-Pro linebacker from the Chicago Bears, and currently a studio analyst for NBC Sports Chicago. During his football career, he saw first-hand that injuries from an “acceptable risk” can potentially ravage someone’s life forever. He’s spoken very candidly about some of his own struggles from living with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) symptoms, and how he’s seen the varied warning signs of CTE.
He will share his unique story and insights at NXT, and will speak about why open communication about risk is a must in any workplace.
